STEM Fest 2020


One day isn’t enough time to celebrate all things STEM, so we’re celebrating STEM all through October!

STEM Fest celebrates innovations in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Northern Illinois University STEM departments and student groups are joining forces with regional corporations, museums, educators and national labs to present a brand-new virtual experience to STEMmulate curiosity and help you find your spark of inspiration!

We’re planning small interactive, online programs throughout October culminating with a large, virtual STEM Fest event on October 31.
